Thank you for joining me in this cause!
June 2nd - June 8th, over 3,000 Cyclists, Roadies and Virtual Cyclists will be participating in AIDS/LifeCycle, a 545-mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise funds for the life-saving services offered by San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center. This year, I’ll be one of them!
I'm riding to support not only improved access and treatment for all people, but especially for people in my transgender community who are affected by HIV/AIDs.
Transgender people are diagnosed with HIV at a rate 3x the general population and around a quarter of transgender women have the disease (less than 1% of the general population has HIV). Transgender people also typically have a harder time accessing appropriate medical care. The two beneficiary organizations offer trans specific HIV care as well as general medical care.
The services provided as a result of this event mean the world to those who receive them, and your support means the world to me.
We’re working together to make HIV/AIDS a thing of the past. Will you support me by making a donation today?
